The CSOs including Malawi Human Rights Resource Center (MHRRC), NGO Gender Coordinating Network (NGO GCN), Human Rights Consultative Committee (HRCC), Center for Human Rights Rehabilitation (CHRR) among others vowed further to name and shame some religious leaders for their misdeeds in the public arguing that they are also promoters of unsafe abortion.
